Did you miss last week’s installment in this series? Don’t worry, be happy— you can still vote on the top player to wear a jersey in the 90s right here. Spoiler alert: those jerseys did not include a flannel shirt tied around the waist. Sorry.

Be sure to check back next week, when we vote on the best of those who wore numbers in the 70s, man.
